Three AHRC CDA Studentships offered

Applications are invited for three AHRC CDA studentships commencing October 2013 on ‘Within the Walls’: Heritage Values and the Historic City

One of these awards will be based in the Department of History (supervised by Dr Sarah Rees Jones), and a further two awards will be based in the Department of Archaeology (supervised by Dr John Schofield). The projects are in partnership with City of York Council.

Using York’s unique position as a ‘heritage laboratory’, the three closely related projects will together make a critical assessment of contemporary heritage values as they relate to (1) the built environment and (2) the buried archaeological resource (both based in Archaeology) and (3) the archive (in History), in relation to national and international criteria on the one hand, and community-led views and values on the other. They will explore the complex relations that exist between heritage and community, and how these can be better aligned to serve contemporary society. As heritage becomes less expert-led, and more community driven, this critical assessment is timely as is realignment of the way heritage values are construed and applied in practice.

Each award pays fees and an annual maintenance grant (currently £13,726 per year), with City of York Council contributing £2000 pa to project costs, including student research expenses.

Application criteria

The usual AHRC eligibility rules apply to these studentships, including having an appropriate masters degree by October 2013 and AHRC’s residential requirements.

Timetable and application process

Applications should be made online and will comprise: an application form incorporating a Personal Statement (which should specify which of the three PhD projects you are interested in, and a statement of how your research interests and experiences to date will contribute to the success of the project); a CV; two references; and two pieces of written work. The closing date is 19th July 2013. Interviews will be held in mid August 2013. Informal inquiries should be made to Dr Sarah Rees Jones (sarah.reesjones at york.ac.uk) or Dr John Schofield (john.schofield at york.ac.uk).
